Finalization Phase…and lots of unexpected work

This was the first try. I was not happy with this one since the textile covering the panels was too close.

So we added 10cm more distance.

Motion Test on DeinBlau

Motion Test on DeinBlau

This is a short video on the motion test. As you can see the 3D camera picks up the hand quite nicely. Some of the panels still have a electrical issue in this video. They are already fixed now.

Web-Interface to download Pictures finalized!

Web-Interface to download Pictures finalized!

Only some days left before the museum opens the doors. I planned to allow visitors to download their pictures. The missing scripts are finalized now but the functionality is still blocked. Visitors will be able to download their pictures at the end of the month. The download section will provide several sizes of the pictures. Here’s an example of a iPhone/Android wallpaper created by DeinBlau at the museum. Particles look so pretty aren’t they? Hope you like it…

The web-interface is not very fancy, but hey – it works. Hope to see nice mobile and desktop backgrounds in the future :). Since I expect lot’s of German visitors I named the menu item above “Bilder Herunterladen” which means download pictures in English.

Power Supply

Here some pictures of the three power supplies for the wall. Each is rated at 5V 40A – So theoretically they consume up to 600 Watts. One of the power supply produces noticeable noise. Not sure at the moment if this is because one of the coils is loose or if the supply is defective. At least the voltage and current provided is stable.
